Machine Connections

Machine Connections can be handled in a number of ways: 

1) If your embroidery machine comes with machine connection software, such as, Ricoma PC Communication Software (EMB_soft.exe) for Ricoma embroidery machine, or "Happy Link" software for Happy embroidery machine, etc., then "Connection Manager" is what you need. Please find out more information by clicking here

2) If your embroidery machine comes with a serial port but no machine connection software, please read the information below:  

  • Before you can send designs for stitching, you must configure the machine in EmbroideryStudio/DecoStudio. This configuration functionality allows you to add machines, change settings for machines that are already set up, or delete machines that are no longer required.
  • EmbroideryStudio/DecoStudio provides alternative means for sending designs directly to the embroidery machine for stitching. Depending on your software options, you can stitch to the machine using either Stitch Manager or Machine Manager.

Your machine must be set up through Stitch Manager if you are sending to Stitch Manager, or Machine Manager if sending to Machine Manager.

The following information provides details pertaining to the protocols and settings required for EmbroideryStudio/DecoStudio to connect to embroidery machines.
